    Default Possible replacement for Roma Uomo - or just get yet another bottle?

    My bottle of Roma Uomo is starting to run empty. Now, this spiffing scent has been with me for a long time. I've mostly used it as a work scent, when behind the wheel of my trusty Punto and obviously always when in Rome

    Even if I'm not done with it yet I was wondering what would be a nice replacment/companion?

    So something similar but maybe with slightly different twist, not a clone as such. Since this is one of my all time favorite Italy scents any new comers should be from Italian house as well.

    Any suggerstions? Feel free to check my modest wardrobe for inspiration/insight if you wish

    Thank you in advance,
    -Mark

    Since you seem to like it, I'd say just get another bottle as you ask in your thread question.

    Have you tried Minotaure from Paloma Picasso? I have not tried it myself, but have seen many people mention that Minotaure has the same vibe as Roma Uomo.

    By the H&R Chart, Roma Uomo is an ambery fougere scent. I'm a fan of this category because most tickle the back of my nose.

    Which is why I like it and Bvlgari Blv, Versace Blue Jeans, Xeryus Rouge, Nikos Sculpture, Diesel Plus Plus, Boss Bottled and Man Aubusson. Still, I'd replace the Roma.
    Regards,

    IMO they are very similar, but while Roma is somewhat resinous, Minotaure is fruitier.
    Give Sculpture by Nikos a try too.

    But If I were you, I'd stick with Roma.

    Would simply get another bottle, since (in my opinion) this is a fragrance worthy enough of backups, repurchases etc.

    That orange sherbet note that Roma has been undefinable for me in other fragrances. I would suggest another bottle.

    + another vote for Minotaure if you're looking for something similar but want to switch it up a little. For me though, if I go through a full bottle of something that probably means it's worth repurchasing, and maybe backing up.

    Same thoughts - go for another bottle, still available at decent prices.

    Thank you all! I've taken the recommendations given down and will try and sample some of them in the near future.

    I've also ordered (yet) another bottle of Roma Uomo from local online supplier
